Substance Abuse and Addiction mini-center TOC - For Family and Friends

(continued)

Find your own support

You may find that talking to people who also have loved ones with alcohol problems helps your own recovery. Al-Anon and similar programs are for people with family members or friends with alcohol problems. Other support groups are specially designed for certain age groups, such as Alateen for teens and Alatot for younger children.

These programs help you recover from the effects of being around someone who abused or was dependent on alcohol. You also may try family therapy.
